It makes me wonder how long Ducati can carry on with endless different frames and now suggestions of an engine revamp, plus the undoubted high costs of hiring Valentino. They must have used up probably all of their cash resources and be up to their neck in debt. With the perilous state of the Italian economy I wouldn't be surprised if they are close to folding. It was extremely brave of them to take on the much wealthier Japanes companies and their early successes added kudos to their bikes. But keeping up with the Jones's, or the Jappses, can drain the piggy bank and Ducati must be looking down the back of the settee by now.
